Firemen boots

Happy Monday Morning! Today I am sharing a flower planter I made using my husbands boots. I think they came out really cute and my husband likes them. 

My husband is a retired fireman and
these are his old boots. 

I cut out patches from his old uniforms
and glued them to the boots.

I added rocks at the bottom of the boots
for drainage and filled them with potting
soil. I planted marigold flowers because
he likes marigolds.  

Marigolds are not one of my favorite
flowers so I add a blue pansies for
 me....hee hee.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a beautiful day today!

Birthday Wishes

Happy June Monday! Wow where did May go? Hope your enjoying your day. I am sharing a birthday card I made for an aunt of mine. Sorry about the bad picture. The card has lots of ink distressing on it but it doesn't show up. 


I used ribbon, lace and string. I used die
cuts to make the Happy Birthday
 embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by today. Enjoy your Summer!

TOPS Conference

Happy Memorial Day!  Thank you to all the military personnel for the sacrifices you have made for our freedom. Hope your having a super great day. 
In April my TOPS group (take off pounds sensibly) had their NM State Conference. Each one of the Chapters had to donate a basket of goodies to be raffled off as a fundraiser for the next year. Our Chapter decided to just donate money, so I made two money wreaths as our donation.

I folded 65 one dollars bills. This wreath had $40.00
on it. I used flower pins to attach the money to the
styrofoam wreath and added flowers and ribbon. 


The second wreath had $25.00 on it. 


At the last minute our chapter was asked to make
the invites for next years State Conference. The
theme for next year is TOPS is FAN-TASTIC.
I decided to make fans. I printed out the invites
on colored card stock and used a die cut to cut
them out. Some of the ladies helped glue them onto
the Popsicles sticks. 
Everything turned out great. Our Wreaths were a big hit. Enjoy your day!

Birthday Card

Happy Monday! Today I am sharing a birthday card I made for my sister Renee. She lives in AZ and I miss her dearly. I probably talk to her more now than I did when she lived here in Albuquerque. (smiling)

I used embossing folders, die cuts a
tag, glitter and embellishments.

Enjoy your day!

Happy Birthday

Happy Monday! Happy Mother's day to all the Mother's out there! Hope you had a restful and enjoyable day! I was pretty bummed because I had to buy Mother day cards this year. Just didn't have time to make any cards.... boo hoo. So, I am sharing a birthday card I made. 
The patteren paper I used has a
3-D look to it making this card
an easy card to make. 

The butterflies and flower are both
embellishments from the dollar bins
at Michael's. 

Inside of the card. The ribbon and lace
are printed on the paper. 
Have a wonderful week! God Bless.
